    Sounds as if you awarded the health issued through the 23rd Nov to 22nd Dec assessment period. The fourth full assessment period will therefore be 23rd March to 22nd April with your first LCWRA element paid on 29th April.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
